Aldie Boy's monkey

This is the new monkey for Aldie Boy's birthday. I think I will call him Aabee which is short for Aldie Boy. He has a very shocked expression on his face. This is because Alden often does shocking things for his age.Soooo Aabee is often shocked ---Alden walked at 9 months, can play a flute like recorder, can ride a horse with one hand in the air and while simultaneously rocking on the horse, can get in all kinds of crashes, can fall flat out on the floor because he looked up at Uncle Skipper, etc
This will be one worn out shock filled monkey--so he is resting in the chair , but still has the surprised look on his face!

Here is a close up--his ears are different so that Rhi can tell him apart from the rest of the gang. His hat is sewed on so Aldie won't lose it.

He now awaits the birthday party for Alden Boy in July!

Black Balsom Mountain

This is one of our favorite places--you get a 360 degree view!! We were hauled up here to celebrate the 32 anniversary of our owners ;-)
